The municipality of Oss is located in North-Brabant, between the cities of ’s-Hertogenbosch and Nijmegen. Oss offers a varied landscape choice; clay and sand come together. On the north side, there is the beautiful Meuse river landscape with its lovely polders and on the south lie the forest and heath; the entire area is simply great for exploring on foot or cycle. Besides the scenic beauty, tourists arrive in droves by the many cheap flights to Oss to enjoy the wonderful heritage that manifests itself in many monuments and buildings.
One of the most notable tourist attractions of Oss is the Sculpture Hortus Figura, a lovely sculpture garden spread over 2 hectares that is dotted with the most marvellous statues, fountains, ornate tables and seating. Oss is literally a garden town; there are 16 beautiful gardens, each with its own colour and atmosphere; you will find surprising combinations of perennials, annuals, bulbs and roses. Tourists availing the plentiful cheap flights to Oss are likely to be surprised by the medieval town with its beautiful dense forests and lovely views of the river; there are more than 130 kilometers of walking trails along moors, marshes, sand dunes, on dikes and wide floodplains.
Among the more interesting heritage buildings in Oss is the Old Rectory with its beautifully furnished interiors with antique furniture and art nouveau pottery and landscaped gardens.
